Fabulous family apartment
Firstly, overall - there are not enough stars to award to this property! The apartment is immaculate, spacious, well appointed and in a great location on the complex. The two bedrooms are large with plenty of storage, each has their own bathroom and there were never any hot water issues (absolute godsend with kids)! We can't say enough good things about the service provided by the owner, and the complex itself is exceptionally well maintained. This apartment is on the top floor of a 3-storey block (with a lift) so the large terrace off the dining area is an absolute sun trap! The smaller terrace off the main bedroom is a lovely spot too (especially for that morning cup of tea). The pools (of which there are two) are clean and looked after superbly by Olga, and the Pool Bar is owned and run by lovely, lovely people. You will definitely need a car (or bikes) as there are no facilities nor nightlife within walking distance (although a small supermarket is about 30 min walk away for grocery emergencies!). The apartment is on the same road as a Tivoli Hotel on its own golf course, and there is a clubhouse where you can buy an early meal (until 7pm) within walking distance, and apparently you can book in their restaurant (pricey) and book their beauty services (again, pricey), but we didn't learn about this until too late this year and intend to try it out next year! You can book cleaning for the apartment during your stay (at a small extra cost) but in all honesty there is everything you need in the apartment to easily keep it clean yourself so not a necessity - a change of linen is provided. All in all - not one bad thing to say - and you don't hear that often!
